Guest Blog: Larriane AKA Larion Wills: Readers, Do You Care?
The slang for switching from one pov to another is commonly called head-hopping. Does head-hopping drive you nuts, lose you, make you want to scream? Even if you don’t understand the definition, you know when you’re reading as if one character is telling you the story and suddenly it shifts off, coming from the other character. When that happens, do you prefer a clear signal of when the writer is switching from one character’s view point to another? In chapters? Paragraphs? Sections? Do you prefer a story written in only one pov or several? Or do you care at all about point of view and just keep reading?

BLURB: The Bastards of Ran, science fiction sweet romance
From the atrocities of war a decision was made to save their race and their world. Protection of those of paramount value must be assured by any means. Ships orbiting their planet were built. Only when their planet would not support even war, the last and lowest, the military, were sent to the ships. From the age of seven when his training began, Jaylon knew only military. Guard duty in the Paramount lounge should have been an easy assignment though he was warned by his peers to never trust the Paramounts, especially the woman. Many played a game, flirt with military, and report them for punishment for breaches of protocol. His secret assignment, discover the trickster and the method behind the self-moving, sometimes attacking objects. From the first night, Tieanna caught his attention. She didn’t flirt. She tormented, using a formidable weapon, the truth. Hidden behind the lies, corruption, and betrayal of all but the chosen few, was the Paramounts’ fear, resurrection of the Bastards of Ran. Surely they and their powers were no more than legend. Who could believe in powers of the telepathic mind to healing with the touch of their hands? Jaylon did not. Still, if the belief of the Bastards, and their belief all were equal, revived then too would revolt and treason?
